Weekend Nuggets: The 4th of July


Official Alpharetta Poster

Phish celebrated July 4th with to in Atlanta’s northern suburbs with the third patriotic weekend of their career. Finishing tour with four sets of energetic music, the band created an all-out party vibe for the tour finale. Within the two shows, improvisational highlights emerged in “Bathtub Gin,” “Antelope,” “Tweezer > Slave,” “Jibboo,” and “Piper > Ghost.” Finishing Independence Day with Rage Against the Machine’s ” Killing in the Name,” sandwiched within a comical, revisionist-history “Harpua” narrative,  Phish created their own pyrotechnics for the holiday.

    In reference to said heavy things, fish is tearing the kit a new one on it. Surprisingly I’ve enjoyed the last two outings of the tune.

  9. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    35 minutes into the world cup final and all I’ve seen is a Kung Fu kick to someone’s chest…

    kickball > soccer

  10. Mr.Palmer Says:

    The flopping in soccer is just ridiculous and totally disrupts whatever flow there might have been. Just brutal….

  11. Gavinsdad Says:

    This game is total blueballs. Including that layup Goal dude just missed.

  12. lastwaltzer Says:

    Just finished Bill Bryson’s “A Walk In The Woods”; spontaneously picked it up on friday and just tore through it. The book is an account of Bryson’s attempt at hiking the Appalachian trail with a friend he hasn’t seen in twenty years (a former alcohol with a bad knee, who is also badly out of shape).

    The book is laugh out loud funny and filled with tons of great information about the history of the trail and park service, the wildlife, the areas surrounding it and tons of hilarious stories relating to the great outdoors. Seriously an awesome light read thats perfect for summer, just thought I’d throw it out there. If your into hiking even in the smallest degree I can’t recommend this enough.

  13. Leo Weaver Says:

    Free soccer! WooHoo!

    Hope gcub made plenty of paella and stocked enough wine to cover overtime

  14. ChefBradford Says:

    read book several years ago, lastwaltzer, very much enjoyed it

    there’s a great book by William Least Heat-Moon, named “Blue Highways”. Guy was recently divorced, laid off from a teaching gig, completely at loose ends. Packed his truck and drove around the country, sticking as much as possible to the two-lane local and state by-ways (which used to be shown on maps as blue highways)

  15. ChefBradford Says:

    read THAT book, I meant

  16. phoammhead Says:

    OMFG – did you see that ball hit the back of the holland player – that just about sums it up – not very exciting and I love soccer . . . maybe a shoot out!

  17. lastwaltzer Says:


    sounds like a good one, not taken. Thanks

  18. dognamedwilson Says:

    I took that book on a solo trip several years ago. Took a raiÑy day off, didn’t leave my tent and read the book in a sitting! For those hours it was more fun than being there.

    Check out his Short History of Nearly Everything

  19. halcyon Says:

    Sloppy game but a good one….they are great actors like NFL wide receivers are!

    So we have all mentioned musical density, including Miner who wrote about this topic, and density is a theme in many of their jams, especially listening to 2010. In some ways they are getting out there without the length it has taken in the past. I like this form of density.

  20. Leo Weaver Says:

    @Chef…Mrs. Weaver and I made “cajun kabobs” last night – chunks of blackened chicken between pieces of andouille on skewers, threw ’em on the grill…the heat! Thanks again!

    Meat, Undermind Portland 09: THE GOODS

  22. lastwaltzer Says:


    Yeah, I really couldn’t put it down and was laughing out loud on more then a few few occasions. I have a friend that has been nagging me to read his books for ages, guess they were right. I’ll definitely be checking out some of his other books.

  23. ChefBradford Says:

    Leo, nice! I almost brought some blackened seasoning, but I thought you could probably find it pretty easily, and there are at least a couple of dozen different types available here.

    Use it on some of that gator you’ve got, you’ll love it for sure

    Glad that sausage is workin’ for you guys, I love it too

  24. ChefBradford Says:

    Is A Walk In…the one in which the author relates the story of his visit to the town (in Pennsylvania?) that was abandoned because of a raging coal fire underground? As I said, it’s been awhile since I read it, but that story creeps me out in some way

  25. Corey Says:

    @Lycanthropist…man, just read back a bit. Sorry to hear of your accident, extremely glad all are OK. Glad you made it back to Lilac central. PHiSH needs to blow up Heavy Things for you and the family for sure. Hope you get to relax in Flower City.

    @Uncle Ebeneezer, Was hoping for the “green friendly” side vs. the “bull killing” side, but boy, they played rough. That kick to the chest was brutal, as were about 10 others. After seeing those fouls/nonfouls, I don’t really miss playing that much. Spain stayed with it, as they have all tourney and scored when they needed it most. I’m groggy after catching the Germany win last night at 3a. Worth staying up for it though. Now I can go back to practicing…no more soccer to use as an excuse.

    Listening to CMAC LP right now…The Connection…what a great way to start off a show. It’s a good natured song and was perfect for the evening that was. Disease in second…well then, the show should be a good one all the way through and I must say, it was. I love it when Trey grabs another’s lick and runds with it, like a jazz gig. Makes me proud to play too.

    C’mon CMAC, get us some bathrooms like the old days will ya? Then it would really be perfect up there. Off potty rant.
